Maserati Granturismo S

Maserati sharpens up its big GT

Maserati has unveiled a new driver-focused version of the Granturismo – the Granturismo S.

The 4.7 litre V8 in the ‘S’ has 434bhp – a 34bhp increase over the standard car – and electro-actuated gearbox with fast MC-Shift.

The Granturismo S will be launched at Geneva next month, and features a high-performance brake system developed in collaboration with Brembo and introduced for the first time on the Maserati Quattroporte Sport GT S.

The system features front brake discs made with dual-cast technology – a dual casting of cast iron and aluminium, paired with aluminium mono-bloc 6-piston brake callipers.

The car has been subtely tweaked on the outside and interior upholstered in Poltrona Frau leather and Alcantara.

More details are expected when the car appears at the Geneva Show.
